"Discussing the impending arrest of the Pirate King and his men, Kate Jackman as the Sergeant worked in a reference to Trump's alleged coziness with Russia and his penchant for early morning Tweeting. That the lines were dropped in the number, "When a Felon's not Engaged in His Employment," was not lost on the crowd, half of which howled in laughter."

"Kate Jackman’s Bloody Mary is absolutely marvelous. Filled with energy and earthiness, whether haggling with the sailors over souvenirs or arranging a match for Cable, she was enchanting in “Bali Ha’i,”painting a portrait of the island in words and song.

In “Happy Talk” Bloody Mary is romantic and sweet, drawing Cable and Liat ever closer together. She displayed many emotions – joking or being serious as the situation required."

"Kate Jackman as Bloody Mary was definitely Luther’s equal in the scheme department, and her mezzo-soprano voice dipped low and soared high in her highly successful rendition of ‘Bali Hai’.  She performed well physically, with a hip thrust or foot stomp for emphasis, all with a sly grin heralding a lovely voice."
